About Us
Lochaber Growers is a farming cooperative, based in North Lochaber, consisting of individual farms, that have joined forces to produce a weekly food box, or CSA (community supported agriculture) and also supply the Antigonish Farmers Market.
By using sustainable all natural farming practices, our aim is to grow good tasting and healthy food for our customers. Through our cooperation, we strive to enhance our own food production, while inviting and encouraging new farmers in our area. Working together, we are able to provide a full complement of fresh fruits, vegetables and eggs.
Practices
Two of the farms installed solar panels to promote sustainable power usage. The farms raise GMO free crops, and do not use chemical pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. All farms have prep areas that maintain physical safety and food safety guidelines.
